MojoTouch Releases Classic Adventure Game 'Flight Of The Amazon Queen' On The Play Store

MojoTouch has been releasing some notable classics of the point-and-click adventure genre for the last few years. First came Simon the Sorcerer (and eventually its sequel               ), then The Seventh Guest. Now the developer has ported Flight of the Amazon Queen, an Indiana Jones-style adventure parody first released for MS-DOS and the Amiga way back in 1995. You can grab it on the Play Store for $4, and the game has no ads or in-app purchases.

[Weekend Poll] Do Smartphone Accessories / Add-On Hardware Actually Matter To You? Would You Buy Them?

LG's G5 has proven nothing if not a divisive and unique piece of hardware. While I understand that many people do like the phone, I had a hard time coming to a favorable conclusion when evaluating it over the last few weeks. Conclusions aside, I want to talk about smartphone accessories - and I don't mean TPU cases (well, maybe HTC's Dot View or Samsung's new copycat thereof may count).

When I look at buying a smartphone, I'm looking at the smartphone. Freebies that come to loyal pre-order customers are always nice, but the vast majority of consumers buy a phone and generally a phone only (again, aside from a case) these days when they walk into a store or submit an order online.

Chromecast 2015 And Chromecast Audio Should Be Available In India And Taiwan Soon

The original Chromecast was a streaming sensation thanks to ease of use and a low price point. The second generation, while generally well-received, still hasn't made its way to all of Google's various international markets. The next countries to get a chance to buy the Chromecast 2015 and its little brother the Chromecast Audio appear to be India and Taiwan. Both countries were recently added to Google's official hardware availability page.

Rovio Really Wants You To Remember That There's An Angry Birds Movie Coming, Soft-Launches Angry Birds Action! To Prove It

Despite the fact that excitement for endless Angry Birds iterations and spin-offs more or less died over a year ago, the Angry Birds movie is scheduled to hit theaters next month. (Apparently creating a 90-minute CG movie, complete with Hollywood talent, marketing, and distribution, takes a lot longer than making a 2D physics game.) Developer Rovio is pumping up the promotion machine starting with Angry Birds Action!, a 2.5D twist on the classic slingshot formula. At the moment it's soft-launched in New Zealand, but the game should be heading to other territories well before the May movie release.

[Deal Alert] All Colors Of Logitech's UE Boom 2 On Sale For $149.99 On Amazon - $50 Off (That's A Good Deal)

It looks good, it sounds great, it's water-resistant, and is available in all sorts of sweet color combinations. What am I talking about? The Logitech UE Boom 2, one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers on the market. At least according to Cam, but he doesn't work for AP anymore, so we may not be able to trust him (I'm kidding, we can still trust you Cam, I'm just a little bitter).

The speaker was on sale a little more than a month ago for $167, but there were only two color options to choose from at that price. Today it costs just $150 at Amazon and you can choose from ALL THE COLORS!

Google Brings Google Play Promo Codes To Austria, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Sweden, And Switzerland

Google has added six new countries to the list of countries with the ability to redeem Google Play balance promotional codes: Austria, Denmark, Norway, Poland, Sweden, and Switzerland. To be clear, this doesn't mean that users can redeem app promo codes generated by developers: that functionality has been available since mid-January, and is available to any country where users can buy apps, as long as the specific app is available to download in that country.

When you buy a Chromecast, usually it comes with some form of voucher for Google Play credit, which is then spendable on apps, music, games, books, movies, or TV shows.
